Wingecarribee wins Sam Samra Award 2020

19 Oct 2020

Congratulations to the water team at Wingecarribee Shire Council for winning this year’s Sam Samra Award. This award recognises improved performance by a local water utility, and is co-sponsored by the Water Directorate, Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) and Local Government NSW.

The judges found that Wingecarribee had made effective use of DPIE’s IWCM framework to develop its IWCM strategy. They commended the LWU for taking ownership in using the planning tool and embedding it into its day-to-day business.

Wingecarribee demonstrates an effective asset management system and continually works on improving asset management practices and systems. During 2019/20 the Council updated its asset management plan and financial plan.

Wingecarribee has commenced implementation of a digital solution for monitoring water supply flows and pressure to better manage water losses and improve water efficiency.

It is well advanced with designing three STP upgrades in order to minimise risks and to cater for growth as identified in its IWCM.

In addition, Wingecarribee Shire Council continues to fully comply with pricing and other best practice management requirements.
